This hot Reuben Dip recipe, comes from my sweet neighbor, and is perfect for St. Patrick’s Day. Though my dear mom loved a great Reuben Sandwich year round and probably would have dug into this dip any time it was put out. If you share her love of sauerkraut and corned beef, you are going to totally dig on this amazing dip. My neighbor’s rendition of it is done in the crockpot, but if you don’t have a small slow cooker, you can just as easily do it up in the oven.

How to Make Reuben Dip in the Oven

This recipe can be made in the oven or the crockpot and you will find instructions for both in the recipe card. I prefer baked Reuben Dip, because it is only 25 minutes in the oven.

  1. Combine all of the ingredients in a large bowl.
  2. Bake in a casserole dish, uncovered.

Five Ingredient Hot Reuben Dip

You read that right. This delicious appetizer recipe is only five ingredients! It simply could not be easier.

  • Mayonnaise: You can lighten this recipe by using low fat mayonnaise and it will still work perfectly.
  • Thousand Island Dressing: Russian Dressing would also work here.
  • Sauerkraut: Be sure to drain this well. I actually like to even squeeze out a bit of the moisture.
  • Swiss Cheese: Naturally, you could use another cheese here, but Swiss is really the choice to get that classic Reuben taste.
  • Corned Beef: I think it works easiest to just buy corned beef from the deli and cut it up, but you could also use left over corned beef.

Making Reuben Dip in the Crock Pot

This is such a great easy way to make this recipe for a party. You can just throw all the ingredients in the crock pot two hours before your party and then walk away. The major benefit to this method, is that your dip will stay warm throughout your party.

For this recipe you will need a small 1 1/2 quart crock pot. It will seem like all of your ingredients aren’t going to fit in there, but they are. You will be fine. And so will your dip.

What to Serve with Reuben Dip

This recipe would be great with any hearty cracker. I served it with Ritz crackers. But I really wanted to serve it with rye chips (my store was out). It would be great put out with those little rye breads too.

FAQ

Can I freeze Reuben Dip?

I never recommend freezing a recipe that has mayonnaise in it. The mayonnaise will change texture dramatically in the freezer.

Can I make cold Reuben Dip?

Because one of the best parts of the dips is the melted cheese, I do not recommend making this a cold dip recipe.

    I think the dip is a little too bland. Next time, I will roast some caraway seeds and add them after the recipe is cooked.
